Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Wearing EpiPen adrenaline syringe. Girl at the beach wearing an EpiPen adrenaline syringe around her neck. This is used for the emergency treatment of anaphylactic shock, a type of allergic reaction that can be fatal in minutes. The EpiPen is an auto-injector that can be self- administered. The Junior version, which is for children, contains 0.15 milligrams of adrenaline. Common triggers for anaphylaxis include seafood, nuts and stings from animals like jellyfish and bees. The symptoms of anaphylaxis include local or systemic swelling, a drop in blood pressure and breathing difficulties. People who are susceptible to such attacks should carry adrenaline with them.
